KCRR #3 Chevron and Scallop

I can't believe it's already February! These past several months have flown by for me! I'm hoping it continues to speed through the winter months. Winter is not my favourite time of year...I'm a sunshine girl!:)

Friday means it's time for...

This week, we randomly chose from our list (through the following two items:

Chevron Pattern
Scallop Circle

These must be used in any way, shape, or form in the making of our card/project this week.
I really liked these two items! It really got my creative juices flowing... I didn't quite know what I was going to do until a couple days ago. I saw a great sketch from Deconstructing Jen and ideas started coming to mind. I went through my designer paper and found a few with chevron patterns, but decided to go with my favourite colour, Rich Razzleberry, from the Sycamore Street collection. I always struggle what colour to put with Rich Razzleberry. Generally, I go with So Saffron or Crumb Cake, but this time I wanted to brighten it up a little...


What do you think? I really love this colour combo! Tangerine Tango coordinates so perfectly! I embossed the card front with the new Vine Street embossing folder from Sale-A-Bration. It matches with the Madison Avenue stamp set quite well. This was my first time using the stamp set and I love it! I punched out circles from different designer paper in the two colours and popped up the large scallop circle to make it stand out. The sentiment "happy birthday wishes" completes the card.

Because it's a 5" x 5" square card, I created a coordinating envelope using the same chevron patterned designer paper.

Now it's time to hop on over to Karly's blog to see what she has created!
